6 Holiday Gifts For Your Baby That Are Actually Useful

Soapsox  Bath Toys


I actually searched specifically for bath toys to get my 15-month-old this year for Christmas because bath toys are actually something that 1. are always useful in my house and 2. always somehow mysteriously go missing. 

This new brand of bath toys from Soapsox combines cleaning + playing in one, with a bath toy that you can actually add soap or baby shampoo to to help your little get clean while they play. Genius.

Wooden Infant Teething Ring

Teething rings are a must for babies, but who really wants their little one chewing on plastic, which contains who-knows-what chemicals? This wooden infant teething rattle from Haba is designed in Germany and is made of non-toxic materials and stain to make it safe for lots of chewing.

A Holiday Dress That Gives Back

I'm a big fan of getting baby clothes for gifts because it's one time in their life that they can't be disappointed with just getting clothes for Christmas. To save on money and give back to other children, pick up a holiday dress from Schoola.com, which has partnered with The Malala Fund and sends proceeds of every sale is paid directly back to schools to fund important programs like art and music.

A Sturdy Shoe

 Oh my gosh, how much do I love these shoes? Baby shoes are impossible to buy, because so many of them are too cutesy to actually be functional or they're too much like adult shoes to actually like cute on a baby. The #babyshoestruggle is real, you know what I'm saying?

Which is why I love the options from JustShoesForKids, because the shoes are functional, cute, and sturdy enough to let any toddler stomp through the mud without ruining everything.

Sleep Sheep Plus Sound Soother

It's a toy, it's a stuffed animal, it's a sleep aide, it's a sound machine--it's the perfect all-in-one sneaky present for your baby that will also give back to you with a good night's sleep. Ahhh....
